Faculty Profile for Al Van Mil

 

Al Van Mil

Haliburton School of The Arts

Al Van Mil studied fine art at the University of Guelph and OCAD. Graduating in 1972, he was deeply involved in the Canadian art scene during the seventies. In 1980, he founded a commercial art company, which grew to be named one of the top three architectural model companies in the world by New York magazine in 1986. Selling his subsequent architectural companies in 1989, he again began to pursue painting full-time. His colourful eclectic style continues to evolve as he explores the many possibilities of painting and drawing. Landscape, still life, figurative and abstract elements combine traditional and contemporary imagery. He has exhibited in the National Gallery and The Art Gallery of Ontario, as well as in many privately owned galleries. He has also painted on stage as a performance artist with members of the Canadian Opera Company and the National Ballet of Canada, among others. A variety of agents and prestigious galleries represent Al's work in Ontario, Quebec, New York, and Europe. www.alvanmil.com
